June 2 2024 Daily Prayer

Every day, we will post a few brief prayers inspired by the Liturgy of the Hours.

O Lord, open my lips. And my mouth shall declare your praise.
Ant. Come, let us adore Christ the Lord, the bread of life.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me,
to revive my drooping spirit.

He guides me along the right path;
he is true to his name.
If I should walk in the valley of darkness
no evil would I fear.
You are there with your crook and your staff;
with these you give me comfort.

You have prepared a banquet for me
in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing.

Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
all the days of my life.
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
for ever and ever.
Ant. Come, let us adore Christ the Lord, the bread of life.

Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:16-17

Is not the cup of blessing we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread we break a sharing in the body of Christ? Because the loaf of bread is one, we, many though we are, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.

The Canticle of Mary

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, 
My spirit rejoices in God, my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.


Enrich your Church through the celebration of the Eucharist,
Jesus, you are the bread of life!
Help all priests to live their vocation worthily,
Jesus, you are the bread of life!
Unite all Christians in the celebration of this great Sacrament,
Jesus, you are the bread of life!
Dear Jesus,
You gave us your own Body and Blood. As we contemplate your great gift, may we celebrate this feast with a truly thankful spirit. We ask the Father for this in your name in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
